A Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Export Promotion Authority, Mr Akilu Sayibu, has appealed to the media in Dagbon to help market the Northern Region as a place worthy of investors and investment.
Speaking to the media in Tamale on Sunday during the launch of ” The Dagbon Peace and Progress Now”, Mr Sayibu hailed the effort of the Northern Regional Coordinating Council, the Peace Council of Ghana and other stakeholders for organising the programme which according to him, was fully positive and in the right direction and must be sustained.
The Deputy CEO, who is also a son of Dagbon and was duly invited to participate in the programme, stated that the only way Dagombas could be respected in Ghana to the maximum is for Dagombas to be seen as united and ready for the needed development and progress of the area.
Mr Sayibu added that, investors were ready to invest in several sectors of the Northern econony but want to be sure of lasting and permanent peace in the area to safeguard whatever investment they intend bringing to the area.









“Let us be each other’s keeper. Let us understand that we are all Dagombas who must be proud of our identity and not engage in acts that can retard our progress as a people”, he admonished.
It must be recalled that the Dagbon area of Northern Ghana has been engulfed in chieftancy conflict following the events of March 2002 which led to the death of the Ya Naa Yakubu Andani I and others in Yendi.
There is a renewed interest in working to find lasting solution to the Dagbon crisis and the lauch of the “Dagbon Peace and Progress Now” is one of such efforts.
